Any Blue Oval fan worth their weight in engine oil will know just exactly who Lee Iacocca is. He’s essentially the godfather of the Mustang, and other Ford-bodied vehicles alike during his time at Ford in the ’60s. Iacocca was such a huge part of the Mustang’s history, that a company called Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters (GFM) actually built 45 examples of a Mustang model just to honor him. How awesome is that?

Very cool indeed, as one of those 45 examples (no. 5 to be exact) recently was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auctions for a respectable $82,500. Debuting as a 2009 model, these ultra-rare, aerospace-inspired Mustangs were with built with the intent to combine a futuristic – yet modern – exterior.

These Mustangs featured sunken headlights, a slanted grille, a custom exterior color, a Ford Racing Handling Package (using complete Ford Racing suspension), and a set of Brembo brakes for starters. To match the exquisite taste of Iacocca badging and Iacocca diamond-design embroidered leather seats, the team at GFM polished this pony up with a Ford Racing polished supercharger, an aluminum overflow tank, a power steering tank, and a pair of chrome valve covers to match.

So, it wasn’t all about the show with the 45th Anniversary Iacocca Mustang, as it was the go. If you’re in the market for one of these 45 examples produced, it’s hard to say when these come up for sale. But when they do, you can bet they’ll sell fast.
